Amazon Eero Mesh WiFi review
Finder score: 4.5
How we score our reviews

eero was at one time its own networking company before being gobbled up and becoming part of the massive Amazon empire. The eero mesh system as it's sold in Australia isn't the company's fastest or most technically proficient system, but it provides a rock-solid and surprisingly fast mesh system that's very easy to set up. For most consumer needs, that's all you want out of a mesh networking system.

Should you buy the Amazon eero mesh WiFi?

  • Buy it if you want a simple and reliable mesh system at a fair price

Finder score: 4.5

The Amazon eero mesh system, like most mesh systems, isn't "cheap" by router standards, but it's certainly on the lower price scale for mesh systems. That's reflected in some of its technical limitations, but not in its real-world performance, which is well above what I've seen to date for dual-band Wi-Fi 5 systems. Its exceptional throughput in that category makes the Amazon eero mesh system an easy recommendation.

Amazon sells the Amazon eero mesh system in a three-pack as tested for $429. Individual eero mesh points are available for $199 each, and at the time of writing, Amazon was selling two of them for $299 if that would meet your needs.
